Vegetable Verses


Vegetable flan and vegetable pie;
Everybody likes them! So do I!
Full of vim and full of vigour,
Full of vitality to make us bigger.
Vegetable omelet, vegetable stew;
Everybody likes them! So do you!
Full of value! Full of variety!
Just what we need in our society.

Vegetables mashed and vegetables sliced;
Vegetables chopped and vegetables diced;
Vegetables cooked and vegetables raw...... 
Though not very easy to sip through a straw!
Vegetable lunch and vegetable tea;
Chock-full of vitamins ABC!
Buy some from the vegetable man
In his very nice vehicle, the vegetable van.

Vegetable this and vegetable that.
Drive your vehicle on vegetable fat!
Bio-fuels of various persuasions
May prevent fossil-fuel contagions.
Vegetable mixtures, of various varieties
Might yet save our guzzling societies.
Verdant green is the colour of choice
So to 'Vegetables! Vegetables!  Raise your voice!

A veritable vegetable venue. Made me think of the song "Vegetables" by the Beach Boys.

I'm gonna be round my vegetables
I'm gonna chow down my vegetables
I love you most of all
My favorite vege-table

If you brought a big brown bag of them home
I'd jump up and down and hope you'd toss me a carrot

I'm gonna eat my, my vegetables
im gonna love my, my vegetables
I love you most of all
My favorite vege-table

I tried to kick the ball but my tenny flew right off
I'm red as a beet 'cause I'm so embarassed

Sleep a lot eat a lot brush em like crazy
Run a lot do a lot never be lazy
Sleep a lot eat a lot brush em like crazy
Run a lot do a lot never be lazy

I throw away my candy bar and I ate the wrapper
And when they told me what I did I burst into laughter

I know that you'll feel better
When you send us in
Your letter an'
Tell us the name of your
Your favorite vege-table

How do you do it?? One verse after the other; they seem roll out of your computer without any problem. They are very amusing and full of wisdom too. I like the green advise in the last verse!

Give me one

A clever poem, and I like Richie's Beach Boys song as well. I fixed vegetable soup for supper last night:)
